Congrats to MA Authors and Artists

Friday, March 9th, 2012

We’re happy as a clam/lark/dog with two tails to congratulate Massachusetts authors Maya Jasanoff (Harvard historian), Edith Pearlman (Brookline novelist and short story writer), and Mira Bartok (memoirist, arts blogger, and past ArtSake guest writer) for winning National Book Critics Circle Awards at yesterday’s ceremony in NYC!

Read NBCC’s awards announcement.

And, while we’re being congratulatory, well done to all artists honored by the New England Journal of Aesthetic Research’s New England Art Awards (see the list, announced March 1).
